I love to try different facial scrubs. When I am finished with one product, I search the shelves of the natural beauty aisle for a new one to try. It keeps things interesting and helps me find the one that works for my skin.
This month I have been using Burt’s Bees Peach & Willowbark Deep Pore Scrub. I have found that scrubs are best for my skin because I love the grit that gets rid of dead skin. It makes my face feel smooth and helps give me a natural glow. I find that when my skin looks amazing I don’t want to use a lot of makeup, which makes getting ready in the morning super easy.
Burt’s Bees Peach & Willowbark Deep Pore Scrub uses ground peach pits as the scrub base. It smells pretty and peachy and the grit is ground very chunky. I find that if it was made of a finer peach stone it would make sloughing away dead skin mush easier. Instead the grain is spaced too far apart in the scrub and I feel it doesn’t cover my whole face. It also uses grapeseed oil, so after you wash it off you have a greasy residue. If you have dry skin, you may like this. I don’t mind it as long as I towel it off when I’m done.
It also has willowbark extract which contains natural Beta Hydroxy Acids, that works as a natural skin exfoliant to help unplug follicles and pores.
It’s not my favorite facial scrub, but I will use it I can’t find the one I like in stock. It’s a natural product that is pH balanced, sodium lauryl and laureth sulfate free, paraben free, phthalate free, and pretty cheap – selling for around $7. All big pluses when I search for a facial scrub.
